Is anyone else aware that their website is inaccessible?
I was too poor, for too long (still am, but trying to gather ideas for prep) to get my hands on their 8 lug disc brake conversion brackets. Is there an alternative besides the P-30 business? Is he/they members here?

I would be willing to guess that it's a done deal.

Tom's Classics AKA Auto City Classics had a kit at one time. Their website doesn't list it, but may be worth a call.
http://www.autocityclassic.com/

You could always try and come up with something on your own too. I worked on building my own kit for awhile, but had some machine shop issues and went another direction. I've seen some members here and other forums come up with their own setup.

Randy Domeck from Indianapolis Fabrications has a kit for big trucks. He may be a good resource.

Here's a bracket that was done by a 17 year old. He CNC Machined it in his high school shop class.

One of the issues with the conversion is that most aftermarket rotors are so deep. That's why Hollister used a wheel spacer. I tried a rotor from a 92-96 F350 4wd, but it wouldn't go over the hub without machine work. Dodge B350/B3500 vans have a shallower rotor, but I never did try them.

Is that via laptop or PC? I'm stuck using my phone and the upper left on the mobile site is only the icon/link to our home page.
Could you copy & paste the address, I'd really appreciate it!
